England’s Masters teams landed all four World Cup titles on a memorable day for the host nation to cap a superb 10 days of hockey in Nottingham.
All of England’s men’s and women’s over-35s and over-40s finished the tournament with 100 per cent records at the first of three Masters World Cups this year. But it went down to the wire before England over-40s goalkeeper Paul Hatton kept out a typical, never-say-die performance from an Australia unit in a thrilling shoot-out to spark joyous scenes at Nottingham Hockey Centre.
Victory left England O40s retaining their title, along with England’s women O35s who are now double world champions.
